Few tips and a question[edit]

Hi, I'm totally Starbound Superbound, and I would like to give some advice regarding few formatting things:

  1. Category:Kirby is for articles about Kirby as a character, so audio files don't belong here.
  2. Game titles and soundtracks names should be italicized (Kirby Star Allies, Kirby Star Allies: The Original Soundtrack etc. etc.). You can do it by putting two apostrophes between word you want to italicized, like ''Kirby Star Allies''. Just don't confuse it with "quotation marks", as they do not affect wikicode.
  3. There's no need to add Category:Audio and Category:Copyrighted audio manually, as choosing in licensing "Copyrighted audio" or adding {{Audio}} to page automatically categorizes them.

Also, I have one question - in some of your files, you put Kirby Star Allies: The Complete Soundtrack as a source: I'm changing it to Kirby Star Allies: The Original Soundtrack as I think they are the same thing, however, just to make sure, they are the same thing, yes?

Hi Superbound! Firstly, thank you for all this information. I’m super new to Wiki editing and any/all information I can gather to do a better job is valuable to me!

Italicize game titles and soundtrack names, Kirby is for the character, don’t add those two categories manually, and (as I noticed from your edits) add links to pages in the description of the audio file whenever applicable. Now that I know it, I’ll be sure to take my time and format file uploads more correctly going forwards!

Finally, yes, I don’t know how I got turned around but all of my files are from Kirby Star Allies: The Original Soundtrack. Good catch!

Thank you for doing clean-up work on the files I left behind, and before I upload any more I’ll consult other files on the wiki and check their formatting to keep it consistent across the site. Have a great week! LeoUnlimited (talk) 21:01, 23 September 2020 (UTC)

To add to point 3 - this doesn't apply only to {{Audio}}, but to other copyright templates as well, {{Game screenshot}} automatically categorizes to Category:Screenshots. If you want to, I can give you the full table. Superbound (talk) 13:04, 11 December 2020 (UTC)
I would love that, thank you! And I also caught on to not italicizing Team Kirby Clash, thanks for tweaking that before I went on to edit the Healmore and Beam Mage pages! LeoUnlimited (talk) 05:12, 13 December 2020 (UTC)
